Pretty sweet deal.....

I don't always post strictly skoolie related stuff....

but, when I see someone thinking "outside the box", I believe it deserves recognition

That's pretty cool.

Was thinking of the container tiny home thing years ago. Drop a couple of cans on a property up north, wouldn't have to worry about snow load, trees falling and unless someone cut the locks off all your $#!t would still be there.

was thinking 5 containers would fit someone's needs pretty well....

you could build a patio above second level
drew something better a while back with windows and patio area, but it's on different laptop

workshop in container 1,
living area, kitchen, and bathroom in 4 & 5,
bedrooms and bath in 2 & 3

carport in breezeway

No up stairs for me, all ground level. Two 20 ft. cans 20 feet apart on a concrete pad with roof trusses over top would leave a 20x20 breeze way for crappy weather if need be, BBQing etc....more of a get away for ATVing with friends/family

possibilities are endless and there's a lot of great ideas out there!

I've seen them stack them side by side, cut an archway between the two, and you wouldn't know you were in a container until you went outside

Spent 9 months living and working in containers downrange... that was enough for me!

Our contractors built a huge shop area out of 40 foot containers. 2 rows of them double stacked, then another row across the gap. They had a 40x30 covered garage area that never got too hot. That was when containers were abundant and free.

Our CHUs had windows (two), electric, insulation, and crappy vinyl flooring. Our bath were trailers on the other side of the frontage road running through the quarters area; KBR would shut the generator off every day for an hour to service it at noon. In fact, we had to petition KBR for a second one because there was too much current draw and it'd frequently spike and shutdown.
